Knitting has always been one of my hobbies, but when life was the busiest due to work and children, the hobby was on hiatus for a long time. Now it's time to knit again, and the love I developed over the years for Iceland and Icelandic horses led me to Icelandic knitting.

The wonderful colors of Icelandic yarns inspire you to design more and more new knitwear. I have also designed sweaters, for example, from the wool of the Åland sheep. The first pattern I published was Gimsteinn, which has sold several thousand copies. Several new models are produced each year.

I am a veterinarian by profession, and also a professional photographer and eternal horse girl. Knitting is a way for me to calm down and rest, to recharge my batteries.

I hope you get the same good feeling from making my knits!
